According to Andy Cohen, there is one celebrity who thinks they are “too big” to be interviewed by him.
While celebrating the five-year anniversary of Radio Andy, the Watch What Happens Live host admitted that he’s had no luck getting Howard Stern on his shows before discussing cancel culture, the cast of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, and also revealing which Real Housewives star he’d trust to babysit his son Ben for an entire week.
“We’ve had a lot of fun on Radio Andy in five years and I think we’ve built it into a really fun brand,” Andy told Daryn Carp on People TV’s Reality Check. “I definitely pinch myself all the time.”
Although Andy has seen a ton of success in recent years with not only his Sirius XM channel but also his late-night talk show, Howard believes he’s “too big” to make an appearance on WWHL and has also refused to visit him on the radio.
“We have tried [to get him on Radio Andy] and, you know, he won’t come down the hall. What can I tell you? But you know what? He’s Howard! He’s such a legend [and] I will accept any pebbles that fall out of his pocket,” Andy reasoned.
When Daryn then noted the way in which society has seemingly become easily offended and asked Andy if he was concerned for his talent, he said he isn’t worried about anyone who appears on Radio Andy.
“I’m not too worried about any of us getting canceled because I think we all stand for what’s right and good,” he explained.
Moving on to the recently confirmed cast of RHOSLC, Andy said fans should expect the upcoming series to become Bravo’s “next hot franchise.”
“I think people are going to be really surprised by a few of the women. I’ve always been interested in the Mormon church and Mormonism is definitely a character and a through-line in the show,” he shared.
“It’s a diverse show. They’re all very interesting, the women,” Andy continued, adding that none of the women abstained from alcohol.
According to Andy, a number of the ladies of the Real Housewives franchise have met his son, including Vicki Gunvalson, Kyle Richards, Teresa Giudice, Brandi Redmond, Bethenny Frankel, and Luann de Lesseps. However, when it comes to which woman he would choose to babysit his little boy for a week, he told Daryn the honor would go to Nene Leakes.
“I would really trust him with most of them… But I’d say Nene and I’d like to shoot it,” he laughed.
